Character Summary


Valentine has the huuuge potential to be a rather insane criminal.
He finds humor in everything, laughing in wrong moments and generally pissing people off. He knows he's an asshole (but eye-candy) and proud of it. Valentine is extremely mischievous, often hacking into other's phones and planting a lewd picture as their background. This is normally because he's bored or he has nothing better to do. He'll get really irritated when people call him 'Valley girl,' 'Lenny,' 'Vally,' or 'Tiny.' He is certainly not a girl, a lame-ass nerd, or small. Vally... Vally.. just.. no. He'll be Valentine or Val, or you'll have to suffer with speaking his difficult to pronounce last name.
On Earth, he's the type to laze around all day playing video games such as Assassin's Creed, Skyrim, The Elder Scrolls Online, World of Warcraft, Stardew Valley, Counterstrike: Global Offensive, Left 4 Dead, and numerous other first-person shooters. Even though he lives in a rather small house, the guest bedroom has been transformed into Hacker Hub Central, which is what he calls it.

Judgment Tier 1. Ascension to "THE COWARDLY LION"
The cowardly lion has changed their position. Once, they were the king of animals. Now, their own anxiety is sheathing their vicious teeth. The cowardly lion is an interesting renewal or outcome, based not on a being’s nature or natural instincts, but on their conscious choices.
You feel new possibilities within you. You can now influence people more easily into making right or wrong decisions. The dominions air, flight, pheromones, and gravity are now augmented. Your character may show unusual command of those dominions for their mastery.

Character In-Depth

What is your characters name? Does the character have a nickname? "Valentine Markusovich. Don't call me anything other than my first name and Val, and we'll get along juuuuust fine."

What is your characters hair color? Eye color? "Dark brown, dark brown. Seems rather simple, eh?"

What kind of distinguishing facial features does your character have? "Hehehe, really? I pride myself on being eyecandy, luv. I have kind of a mustache and beard, but I have the cheekbones too."

Does your character have a birthmark? Where is it? What about scars? How did he get them? "Have one on my left ass-cheek in the form of an irregularly shaped butterfly. The most recent scars that I have that haven't healed over yet are from being mobbed by a bunch of cats. Silly, I know, but I'm a cat magnet."

Who are your characters friends and family? Who does s/he surround herself with? Who are the people your character is closest to? Who does he wish he were closest to? "Mm. Let's not talk about my family. Let's just say they got what they were well-deserved. Honestly? I'm the closest to the people in my vigilante squad, other than the other half of my soul. Geddit? Other half, because she's a demon? No? Okay, then, heh."

Where was your character born? Where has s/he lived since then? Where does s/he call home? "Somewhere in Russia, dah. Pfft. For the first few years of my life I was raised in Pakistan, before I was shipped off to the 'Mericas. Right now I live near Lake Erie in little Ohio."

Where does your character go when he's angry? "Either I'm hiding out in my Hub or out by the forest. I feel calmest among the earth and plants."

What is her/his biggest fear? Who has s/he told this to? Who would s/he never tell this to? Why? "..That someone finds out what my parents did to me. I'm not telling what they did, but so far no-one knows aside from Pithos. As much as I would prefer that no-one would never ever ever find out about it, a few of my fellow Vigilantes are close to finding out."

Does s/he have a secret? "What my parents did to me. I'm not elaborating, so don't ask again."

What makes your character laugh out loud? "I'm... in a near constant state of amusement. When I'm on the computer watching my friends chat, watching people pass by me on the sidewalk as I had to the corner store.."

When has your character been in love? Had a broken heart? "Been in love? Uh... I had a few girlfriends before but I couldn't exactly say I was in love with them. We always broke up on mutual acceptance, though."

What is in your characters refrigerator right now? On her bedroom floor? On her nightstand? In her garbage can?? "Um... a bunch of cheeses, lunch meat, fresh fruit and veggies, some left-over birthday cake from yesterday... On my bedroom floor, well.. I can't see my carpet! My nightstand just has a lamp and my phone. Garbage can is actually completely empty. For once."

Look at your characters feet. Describe what you see there. Does he wear dress shoes, gym shoes, or none at all? Is he in socks that are ratty and full of holes? Or is he wearing a pair of blue and gold slippers knitted by his grandmother? "I'm just sitting at my computer, just watching my screens. No shoes right now, though I wear a pair of black converse. I'm wearing a pair of fluffy Slytherin socks."

When your character thinks of her childhood kitchen, what smell does she associate with it? Sauerkraut? Oatmeal cookies? Paint? Why is that smell so resonant for her? "...My grandma's warm cinnamon rolls. Whenever she came over, my parents actually behaved, not to mention those rolls were hand-made and incredibly good. I'm salivating now, jesus christ."

Your character is doing intense spring cleaning. What is easy for her to throw out? What is difficult for her to part with? Why? "It's easy for me to throw out trash and stuff that isn't exactly needed, but it's really hard to part with anything sentimental or something that reminds me of Grandma."

Its Saturday at noon. What is your character doing? Give details. If hes eating breakfast, what exactly does he eat? If s/hes stretching out in her backyard to sun, what kind of blanket or towel does s/he lie on? "Hehe~ Most likely sleeping still. On my comfy flannel sheets and being surrounded by mounds of pillows and piles of blankets."

What is one strong memory that has stuck with your character from childhood? Why is it so powerful and lasting? "I'm not talking about my parents. At all. Instead, I'll share a powerful memory that I had with my cousin. I believe we were out walking in the park when I was... six? I don't remember it that well. My cousin was older than me by nine years, and always had a soft spot for me. She was such a beautiful young woman, constantly sparkling and practically glowing with kindness and compassion. Eleanor was always blunt as well, and didn't rightly care about what others thought of her. Despite being reckless, she was always the one who was there for me. It was a sunny day, and I think she was chasing me around the park, occasionally picking me up and swinging me into the air. At one point I tripped and fell, skinning my hands and knees. Almost immediately she was at my side, a package of bandages in my hand. After she bandaged up my wounds and soothed my whimpers, she hugged me and told me, 'I will always be here for you, little Valentine. You will always be in the center of my heart.' I miss her a lot, as she went missing when I was nineteen."

Your character is getting ready for a night out. Where is s/he going? What does s/he wear? Who will s/he be with? "I'm probably going out to eat or to watch a movie at the cinema. I just wear what I usually wear: a hoodie, tee, pair of jeans, and my converse. If I'm not alone, probably one of my team-mates."

Demon Information

Where her name was originally Carnwennan (Little White-Hilt) Pithos, her name and legend of the daggers of King Arthur faded away to become merely myth among mortals. She technically came into existance a little before that time period, and is known as one of the Weapon Demons of the Mythos. Little is known about King Arthur's daggers, but it has been attributed that it allows its user to be cloaked in shadows.

She's always scoffed at this, because even though that is merely a rumor, it is a basis in that she's a demon. Pithos is often referred as 'Bitchos' by her host, and even though she snarks at him about it, it lacks any real heat. That part is just well disguised. She is remarkably fond of Valentine, even though she's hidden it. She knows how much his cousin has had an affect on him, not to mention how much she influenced the young man. In turn, she's taken the form of Eleanor.

Pithos is a Civil demon, and is basically a running commentary in Valentine's head. She never shuts up except when they're asleep. She's undeniably snarky, cynical, and sarcastic. Pithos has a lot of sass within her, but she can have the exact same sparkle, compassion, and kindess as Eleanor had when she was around. Not only was his cousin a huge influence on Valentine, it was Eleanor who taught Pithos to wield her kindness and compassion expertly.

Kind-of sort-of FC is Erin Micklow if you want a better picture of Pithos.
